As For St Patty I wasn’t to keen on what St Patrick did to the non christens which is plain intolerant of others belief
But I have to say I’m proud of my Irish heritage. This is the story I been told why one of my ancestors left Ireland and came to America this happen a very long time ago even before the potato famine.
One time one of my relative said something rude about a king over there and he had a choice to get his ear chopped off or get on ship and head to America and I understand there a little bit of land which is Pennsylvania and landed there.
I haven’t seen proof of this story I been told. But I know my Irish ancestors left Antrim County and I to my understanding I still have family over there
